The book has 424 pages and contains details for 125 herbal plants. It gives step by step instructions for using them, which should be followed depending on the nature of the disease and in consultation with a knowledgeable Ayurved practitioner. The book gives the names of the herbs in different languages along with Ayurvedic description, chemical composition, properties, medicinal uses and their coloured photographs. To help the reader identify these parts, pictures of the specific parts of the plant are also given. In India the knowledge of medicinal plants has been continuously passed on through generations right from the Vedic period. The earliest and the main source of Ayurved is Atharvaveda. In the ancient days the sages used to live in gurukuls (traditional schools of that era) established in secluded areas in forests. They routinely investigated and used medicinal plants. People in remote areas of the country depended solely on medicinal herbs for treating diseases because the Greek (Yunani) and Allopathic medicines were not available. Rich and vast traditional experience and knowledge of herbs in still available in villages and tribal areas, but not much consolidated effort has been made to preserve and disseminate this valuable information.
